Default Re: e46 M3 Tire Sizing Thread

Per what Ian said, get the spring perch up or, bigger spacer and more negative camber to then fit under the fender. Tire manufacturer by manufacturer, even in same stated size differ. That is why it's good to look at section width and tread width and other tire specs.
